As colleges fully open in-person for the first time in three years, demand for housing is greater than ever
BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Tour24, an on-demand platform that offers renters an easy way to tour apartments on their own even when leasing offices are closed and gives property management teams the ability to seamlessly manage tours, today announced that it has been selected by Landmark Properties as its exclusive provider of self-guided tours. Landmark is a fully integrated real estate firm specializing in the development, construction, acquisition, and management of high-quality residential living communities and is the most active student housing developer in the nation whose portfolio includes 90 residential communities and 57,000 beds under management.
Offering on-demand convenience that caters to the college-age demographic, 62% of Tour24’s self-guided tours occur the same day they are scheduled and 24% of tours start within 15 minutes of scheduling.

Oliver, CEO of Tour24. “Self-guided tours are a ‘must-have’ for today’s renters and we are excited to work with Landmark to bring this to life in their portfolio.
